Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours
Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving. I am so grateful to all of The Burlap Cottage® followers. May today and this year be full of blessing.
I have been planning something special for my ETSY customers this Holiday Season. As a way to say thank you, I had a beautiful custom laser cut snowflake Christmas Ornament made as a free gift to my ETSY Customers. Natural Maple cut in the shape of a Christmas Ornament, one side has a snowflake etched into it. The other side has my logo and website address.
There are six different snowflake patterns, all very beautiful. I just love the simplicity of it, and I tie it with baker’s twine to the product. I think these ornaments would look great on any style of tree, woodland, natural, farmhouse, to traditional.
The same ETSY shop that makes my product tags, produced these for me: All This Wood. They are very talented and easy to work with. I receive no compensation, I just love their work.
As a little thank you, I will be giving these custom ornaments to the first 100 orders on my ETSY shop beginning now thru the Holiday Season while supply lasts. One ornament per customer please. Happy Holidays!
It is that time of year again for the photo shoot of my Christmas Line 2015. My friend and professional photographer Jennifer at portraitsbyjenniferdenton came to my house where I have many of my new products staged and photographed them for my ETSY shop. Here are the highlights:

Here is a quick look at my Fall Kitchen. As we approach Thanksgiving week, my ETSY shop is in full swing. I am about to begin the busiest week of my entire year selling my Christmas items. I thought, before I share what my home looks like this Christmas, I should post what my kitchen looks like this Fall.
All I can say is plaid flannel has made a big appearance this year. As most of you know, I have been very busy designing, listing and stocking up my ETSY shop for the holidays. I knew my instincts were correct when I began to see my favorite stores such as Target, Pottery Barn, Pier 1, World Market loaded with plaid flannel! In fact when I received the coveted Pottery Barn Catalogue Christmas Edition (cue angels singing), I felt as if I was looking at my own home, since I have had my house staged for a very long time for Christmas taking my product shots. You can see my excitement when I saw this:
I just love the cozy, sitting by the fire, cuddled up with a pillow and sipping my favorite coffee drink images and feelings these textiles evoke. That is why I have incorporated them heavily into my Christmas/Holiday Collections for 2015. Of course I had to put my unique spin on these textiles to come up with something that can’t be found in stores or made in mass markets. Let’s face it, you can find burlap anywhere,holiday items everywhere, and even plaid all over the place. That’s not what I’m going for. I strive to make each item literally artistry…lovingly made in my studio by my own hands. Items that can be personalized, show your own design style, and bring out your own personality in your decor. Products that can work with any design aesthetic.
I am loving the red, white and black plaids this year. Whether it’s buffalo check plaid, tartan plaid, houndstooth check, plain check, whatever it is called, I am loving it! The combinations and possibilities are endless. This is only part of that collection.
I even created a new spin on my Burlap Christmas Tree Skirt and Poinsettia pillows. Here is the Christmas Tree Skirt and Poinsettia Pillow for this collection:
I even had fun making some Christmas ornaments for staging purposes. What do you think, should I list these in my shop? Note the antique ski’s I bought from Pottery Barn last year.
I have made all of my designs to mix and match. Even my designs from prior years work with this collection. Here is my Red Burlap Tree Skirt with White Pom Pom trim:
I have included the classic Tartan Plaid onto my Christmas Tree Skirts and Poinsettia Pillows.
Of course I still carry my classics:
This is just a small sample of what I am offering this Season.
